00:00:06--> 00:00:50

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah, whereby it was shortly before the hegira of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when the difficulties in the Macan period reached its peak, it was around this stage that the Sauron the Mirage took place. And it was around this stage that he lost those most beloved to him at a Serato center. It was around this stage that the believers were actually exiled from the city of Mecca, to live a purely Bedouin lifestyle in the desert, consuming grass and leaves of trees just to survive. And it was also at this stage in his life. And so that was that the disbelievers would come constantly to challenge him, so that his

00:00:50--> 00:01:39

authority as a prophet was a leader of the people could be tempted. The Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam was a human being. And it is in his human nature that we, as his oma can find so much inspiration and so much relatedness to our own lives. For we are not looking at a divine being. As Christians we look upon Christ, we are looking at the human being the best of all escalations, but the human and the place, and in his difficult time in his time of adversity, it was none other than Allah subhana wa Tada, who not only consoled him, but by extension consoled every human being alive they after, through the same methodology that was employed to console him solo la vida usnm. And

00:01:39--> 00:02:28

that was through the message of the Quran. It is about one fifth of the Quran that is dedicated to the topic around divine history. Simply put, stories about the prophets who had gone before the lives, the miracles, the challenges, the battles, and every aspect and they mentioned of the time on Earth, including that of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam himself, but in his own lifetime, he was consoled by lo Subhana. Allah through these stories. And when we read these stories today, when we learn about the stories of the prophets when we learn about what happened to Nabil Moosa as in Surah Baqarah this evening, what happened to Nibiru as a as an Seder, Maria as in Surah, Al e Imran

00:02:28--> 00:03:08

we should follow. When we learn about these stories. They are not intended to be once upon a time, and then at the end, they lived happily ever after. It's not just FYI, you know, for your information, but rather it is the so that we may base our lives upon it, so that we may find lessons within the lives of others because Allah had his hand directly in the story. It is for us to find him either for owning the story or am I the Moosa in the story, it is for us to see the dimensions of relations with Allah subhana wa tada beings out entities in light of this, that we have chosen the base of stories, not as we call it, the base of stories, but as a loudhailer calls at the base

00:03:08--> 00:03:43

of stories. That is the story of Nabil Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam. And late makan Surah 111 verses in the Quran, which we will now navigate through over the coming nights of Ramadan be eaten the light Allah with the near the lows of a hangover data allows us to draw lessons they from so that we can apply them in our lives so that we can improve as human beings. The transformation has began. When we at the end of Maverick sounded this evening, the transformation had begun. We were able to start now in 20 rockets of solder, which we were not able to do before the advent of Madrid today, or before

00:03:44--> 00:04:02

or after HSR last night, the miracle of Ramadan is upon us so we use this opportunity to engage in the message of the Quran. Now looks behind OTA guide us. This particular surah is 111 verses, he only has a surah that has 111 verses is sort of a nice raw a

00:04:03--> 00:04:49

raw, which is of course an amazing it's not political incidents, but it is it is an amazing comparison because this surah is literally about the children of an ABR qub. And the children of nebia COVID, also known as the children of Israel, because nebia codes as the name was Israeli Israel. So this the two stories the two sutras are comparable. In here we find the only occasion in the entire program in which Allah azza wa jal mentions a story in chronological order from the beginning of the story till the end of the story. Nowhere else in the Quran Do you find it and about no other prophet? All of the stories of the prophets are dispersed throughout the Quran and various

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

aspects are mentioned in different occasions. So for example, you will find that the be musasa to Assam story, which is the most repeated story in the corner and you'll find different dimensions of the story.

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

Different places like tonight, we heard about the story of the the cow. You won't find that story in so much detail in any other place except in the verses that we recited tonight, but Nabil Yusuf alayhi salatu wa sallam mentioned only about twice or thrice, but his story year is mentioned from the beginning till the very end and Allah opens up the the particular surah that we are dealing with. How is the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem Alif Lam ra hola como Katara. These abbreviated laters no one knows the meaning except Allah, part of the miracles of the Quran tilka to Nikita will be these are the verses of the manifest the clear book in an zelner who

00:05:40--> 00:06:20

we allowed review it for an Arabic and Arabic recitation, the Quran will forever be in Arabic, for no matter how perfect you think you are translating it, there will always be some of the meanings lost. You can you can translate some of the meanings into another language but never all of the meanings just like any other two languages Afrikaans to English or English to causa etc. So we always rely on the Arabic Quran. And when we know when we understand the Arabic we can see that the lies the in messages that you will never pick up from the English. And we hope to bring out some of that throughout the school year over the month of Ramadan, Laila cold turkey, it is in Arabic so

00:06:20--> 00:07:02

that you may think it is in Arabic so that you may use your intellect for applying your mind to the way Allah speaks about. Anything in the Quran, will open up doors of wisdom and knowledge that you've never before imagined behind the law. I mean, just think about it in this way. If we could study one work after the other of Shakespeare in school, and derive so many different meanings and interpretations and themes and so on. He's just a human being. This is Allah Subhana Medina, how much more can we derive national La Casa La Casa de casas we Allah narrate to You, O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the best of stories. This was one of those times in which the

00:07:02--> 00:07:41

disbelievers came to him and say, You don't know about us. You don't know about Joseph, you don't know about what happened to our forefathers, the Bernice Raju and the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam didn't know he was not privy to the unseen world. So any information that he would have, you would have to rely upon Allah subhanho wa Taala to bring it to him through gibreel Alexa and this was one of those incidents. So notice Allah calls this accidental causes, and many orlimar have gone into the reason why is this the beast of stories, because you will see as we go on all of the meanings that we can derive from this and out practically the essence of our life. Bhima ohana la

00:07:41--> 00:08:04

katha Qur'an through what we are allowed to reveal to you or Mohammed's a lesson inspired to you of this court, and we're including them in Cabo de la mina lawfully and before we told you about this, you will completely unmindful you had no idea. So what is the story about? This is a beautiful way in which Allah composes at the right at the beginning. This is now the fourth verse that we're about to read. And it says

00:08:06--> 00:08:21

that the Prophet Yusuf Alayhi, Salatu was Salam. He had a dream. And he's about to tell his father a dream. And the rest of the story is going to be an unraveling of the meaning of that dream. So what is this dream? It has to come to throw away tomorrow night to find out
